Timothy James Curry (born April 19, 1946 in Cheshire, England) is a British actor and composer perhaps best known for his role as Dr. Frank N. Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975). He also had an earlier career as a rock musician. He studied Drama and English at Cambridge and at Birmingham. His list of roles is extremely extensive, in both TV and movies, live-action and voice-acting for animated features, and it is notable that he almost always plays a villain of one kind or another. Mr. Curry currently lives in Los Angeles with his dog, Frank.
